SLA Names New Executive Director

The Special Libraries Association's (SLA) board of directors has selected Roberta I. Shaffer as the organization's executive director-designate. She will officially assume her new duties on September 4. According to SLA president Donna Scheeder, Shaffer demonstrated both the vision and the leadership skills that will guide SLA in this time of change. According to the announcement, this appointment is the result of a 9-month search and the work of the board of directors and the search committee under the guidance of former SLA president Mimi Drake.

Shaffer is currently dean and professor at the University of Texas-Austin's Graduate School of Library and Information Science. She previously worked as director of research information services at Covington and Burling, a Washington, DC-based international law firm. She has been an adjunct professor at the Catholic University of America, and director of legal communications and associate director of law and technology at the University of Houston Law Center.
